Join us in empowering lower-income families with an affordable shopping event, by bringing in gifts to Westtown from November 19th thru December 3rd.
Affordable Christmas is a shopping event for lower-income, working-class families to provide their children fun and exciting gifts during the holiday season. Families at are invited through partnering community organizations to attend the event and purchase new, unused gifts at 1/10 the cost of their original price.
How is Affordable Christmas Different than Angel Tree?
- Affordable Christmas makes it easy for those families who may be financially struggling, to give their children a special Christmas.
- Families can purchase gifts such as bikes, skateboards, arts/crafts kits, video games, sports toys etc. and spend no more than $10 per item.
- Having families purchase items rather than free gives empowerment and dignity to these working parents who simply need a hand up.
Things to Keep in Mind:
- All gifts are intended for children and teens ages 0-14 years old.
- All donated gifts should be brand new and unopened.
- Westtown is helping out by supplying gifts, however, if you’d like to take it a step further, you can find out about how to volunteer at an Affordable Christmas event by clicking here.
- If supplying gifts is not convenient or not an option for you, you can also donate directly to Affordable Christmas.
